Ongoing applications

Community Longitudinal Family Physician (CLFP) Payment


Application deadline: December 31, 2023

The CLFP payment recognizes community-based family physicians who care for a panel of patients for providing long-term, relationship-based care.

Team-Based Care Grant


Application deadline: Ongoing

The new Team-Based Care Grant provides $15,000 to eligible family practices that have onboarded interprofessional team members. The grant will help address the costs of recruiting and onboarding into a practice, which physicians have identified as a barrier to creating team-based care practices.

Panel Management Bonus Payment


Application deadline: Ongoing

In addition to sessional dollars for time spent completing the phases of panel management, FPSC offers a $3,000 bonus payment once all three phases are complete. Compensation is designed to support community longitudinal family practice doctors and their teams in using their EMR (electronic medical record) systems to identify and respond to their patients' chronic and preventative care needs.

To be eligible for the bonus payment, you must:

  • Be a community longitudinal family physician practicing in British Columbia

  • Intend to remain the Most Responsible Physician/Provider (MRP) or your patient panel for at least the next 12 months.

  • Be using an EMR (electronic medical record) system to document and manage patient medical information (including medical history), tests, diagnosis, and treatments) in the clinc where you are undertaking panel management.

HDC Discover Payment

Family doctors who have completed panel management are eligible for a new $1,000 FPSC payment if they enrol in HDC Discover and complete the orientation in the web based application.

Group Family Practice Development Grant


Application deadline: funding is now fully committed and as such no new applications are being accepted at this time. 

The FPSC has introduced a new grant to help cover expenses incurred when family doctors join or form a new or expanded group practice.

BC Care Bundle Payment

A FPSC one-time payment with a minimum of $1000 that supported eligible family doctors who took on the additional work of identifying and treating patients with care needs noted in the Ministry of Health’s BC Care Bundle for Supporting High Risk Patients Through COVID-19 Pandemic and Influenza Season.
